Some Kuechly and Cam bits from our favorite PFW

75 posts in this topic

Incorrect.

He's saying you can't attribute these comments to media because that's not their source.

These bits are taken from scouts, coaches, GMs, etc. People that work in the NFL, not sportswriters.

Well, I took the OP's word and didn't read the article (till someone pointed it out to me). LOL

However, after reading it. I still don't know if it's not their comments; the same way they had all those "anonymous sources", pre-draft on Cam that was easily disproved and obviously lies.

I don't take them/that seriously.

Thanks though.

You know... like when Cam packed it in after we started 1-6. Oh wait.

If that really came from an NFL scout, who thinks that Kap is as fast as RG3 and Mike Vick he should be fired.

Sometimes I feel like I should become a scout because the ones that happen to talk to PFW are fugging idiots (except the one that talked about Keuchly he was spot on ;)).

Just for clarification i never said the quotes were from PFW, just the feature itself.. I still think who ever said that about cam was probably an intern scout for another team or something who never was actually in a Locker room with him or met him in real life lol

Thats the thing.

They probably made this up, like they did the Pre-Draft stuff from Cam, coming 'anonymous sources'.

Yeah right!!

They don't need to make anything up.

Plenty of NFL guys are very free with their words when they know they don't have to attach their name to it.

They've had this feature for years, long before Newton ever came along. Occasionally guys admit to being the ones who said such and such or someone figures it out.

The only problem is the ones who talk the most likely know the least.

Also what does NFL scout mean?? I watch games pretty closely and try to form opinions on players and teams. Does that make me an NFL scout?

I bet you $100 these are not all guys that are employed by NFL teams and he is talking to draftniks that are technically NFL scouts.

Oh, I have no problem with your post or quote anyway; cause the spirit is correct.

It's quite possible that these were BS--low level scouts; ones' who haven't actually watched Cam and stated that (but PFW didn't give that disclaimer), or one of their writers, who used to scout, therefore the title. Who knows?

I can tell you, I knew the hit piece they did on Cam before the draft was total BS, as soon as I heard it. Cause the Miami Herald, and the draft people they work with, did an excellent, UBER extensive draft piece (just like NFL teams would, and the Panthers did on Cam), and they confirmed that all Cam's coaches and teammates from Highschool, Junior College, and Auburn, loved him and said he was a strong, positive natural leader, who was well liked, admired, and stayed out of trouble.

Most of the media didn't talk about the actual research on Cam (which was actually spotless, outside of his Univ Of Florida travails). And instead they just played into media stereotypes that were unfounded or untrue.

It was really a total hit job from so many sources. That's why Warren Moon, and others, were so mad at the poo he took, but nonetheless confident he would succeed and prove them wrong. And he did, of course.

And you can find just about any opinion you go looking for. Ask league guys about the Ryan brothers after a few beers, or about Cutler or Newton. They print the ones that will generate the most mentions or hits.

Newton is the cowboy in black right now for many in the media. He has been cast as a bad guy and it is an opinion shared by many non-Panther fans. So yeah, this stuff will continue until we win. It used to piss me off, because he is, after all, our guy. Now it barely even bothers me.

i wouldn't be a bit surprised if it was from a legit NFL exec. and i expect it was.

not all of them feel the same way about players. some execs like newton, others don't...but that's not a big deal because the same is said for most QBs in the league. aside from maybe brady, rodgers, and brees i'm sure they all have their detractors.

doesn't really matter though. no reason for panties to be all wadded up.

Its funny how now a days winning a couple games automatically equals "leader".

Every great "leader" at the QB position has had a strong leader of a coach standing behind him.
